Agreed to a standpoint but I dont need any dosing heads to run the trident. It all inclusive and all for for $600 bucks. No it doesnt dose yet but even when it does I will need 2 units to get that up and running max. So another $600. Still only 1700 to do everything that to competitor can do as far as we know. If the DHL can monitor things other then the big 3 then that is a different story but I dont really see the need to have it monitor minor elements I may have to test 12 times a year tops. Just one mans opinion is allI can't say that the Trident will be ANY cheaper than GHLs setup. Especially when you think about it (yes it might be slightly cheaper for those who already have the apex head units). It is not being released as a method of controlling only monitoring. Yes the controlling option will come down the road but how many DOS heads will you need for all that? The DOS is by far the most expensive per head and LEAST flexible as you Can't control it without the apex. When you look at it from a reliably standpoint, if the apex head dies, your entire system is dead, testing, dosing, everything. You DO NOT need a controller for this unit at all if you don't want, Just the SA Doser, this unit can completely test and dose without purchasing a controller atall, this isn't even an option with the Trident as it's completely dependant on the apex brain. I'll agree with @cvanchuck GHL Shut up and take my money!!
